What is bookkeeping?

 In simple terms, it’s keeping track of financial transactions for an organization.

However, it is more than keeping copies of deposit slips and receipts in an envelope. It is recording the transactions and categorizing them according to what they were used for – marketing, salaries, janitorial services, etc. – or where the money came from – income from sales, donations from parishioners, etc.

Why do I need bookkeeping?

Recording and categorizing transactions makes it easier to process and interpret the financial information crucial to your organization. You can easily see who you owe money to (your accounts payable) and who owes you money (your accounts receivable). If you need to borrow money, you can quickly access financial statements to send to lenders so they can fund your loan. You can also plan and predict the future based on past financial information, making it easier to budget and find ways to increase revenue and decrease expenses.

Keeping detailed financial records helps keep you in control of your business finances. By outsourcing the work to The Payroll People, it allows you to keep your records up to date and accurate, while focusing more on managing and growing your business.

We exclusively use QuickBooks Online for our bookkeeping clients.
